  1. In a medium storage container, combine vinegar, salt and sugar until the salt and sugar dissolve.
  2. Pour the boiling water over the diced red onions while they are in a sieve (allowing the boiling water to drain through into the sink). Add drained red onions to the vinegar, salt, sugar mixture.(the longer they marinate in the pickling juice the better).
  3. Drain the red onions.
  4. Use immediately or store for up to three days in an airtight container lined with plastic wrap directly on top of the relish to prevent avocados from browning.

Serving Suggestion: This relish can be paired with fresh fish, tacos, hot dogs, burgers, sandwiches or even enjoyed with chips.

Beverage Pairing: None.

Note for Nutrition Analysis: After pickling, 1/3 cup of pickling juice remained (2/3 cup of pickled onions were left when separated from the pickling juice). One Tbsp. of the pickling juice was added to the recipe.

*May substitute 3/4 cup jarred pickled red onions.

**Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
